MY A CUSOMS KEEP BREAKING!! (Part II)

Well I made a thread like this awhile ago because I had just cracked my 17" A custom crash and after discussion on playing technique and tilt on the cymbal, I thought I would be good. Oh nay nay... I just cracked my 18" crash which is also an A custom!!
So now I'm to the point where I don't want to invest any more money in A customs, but I love the sound. What would you recomend?

nice john pinette reference.

try some aaxs, my personal favorites are the aaxplosions but the studios and darks are quite nice as well. the stage series probably sounds a little better further off...ive never been particularly fond of them up close.

music you may want to look at a heavier cymbals.

I don't play heavy music, I'm just a little hard on my cymbals.

Well don't be, if you don't want them to break.

If you get the technique right you can get the full sound out of your crashes without bashing them.

from the many times i used every type of cymbals. the best ones you can gladly get and never break are these http://www.paiste.com/products/cymbals/signature_main.php
thos cymbals are pretty much the most frail thing i'v ever played. they sond absolutely amazing so i switched to them a while bac. bad idea. they were so expensive and i broke 3 of them really fast. i switched back to a cusoms and have broken 2 or 3 since. I'd love to tr them again i'm just scared theyre gonna break. and theyre the most expensive line paise has i think

yeah, I want to find a great quality cymbal that aren't so damn expensive because of the name stamped on it.

Seems like everyone on these forums is berserk about Saluda; they sound great, apparently. They have a program where you can send in cymbals and exchange them for Saludas. Apparently they are comparable to Sabian and Zildjian and everyone while still being way cheaper. Ask Howe about 'em.

If you are a Z guy, then try the Z Customs mediums; Projection and Rock models are to heavy. Or even the A Customs Mediums - those are heavier than the Projections.
 

wes the bear.

get A Custom PROJECTION cymbals.

never broken a single one. they're heavier and are tougher, but still have that awesome a custom sound.

I love my A customs, don't get me wrong, but to echo SGarrett I'm not a brand whore, if something is good, it's good. The support Saluda has on here makes me believe they are good. Personally I look forward to speaking with Saluda and using their cymbals. Go for it and let us know.

No doubt. I'm looking forward to getting to play, or at least hear, some Saludas in person.

I honestly don't understand how you guys break so many cymbals, it just hardly ever happens unless your not playing them right or you got an anger problem.
